It was previously announced that 20th Century Fox World Theme Park Genting Highlands will open this year. Unfortunately, that’s not the case anymore.
We hate to break it to all you thrill seekers, but according to Places and Foods writer Wilson Ng, the opening date may be postponed till the end of next year. We can’t say that we’re totally surprised by this news but it’s a bummer nonetheless.
If you’ve recently travelled up to Genting, you’d notice that construction is still underway and the highly-anticipated theme park is far from completion at this point in time. While the delays can be caused by many factors, it is learned that there are plans for a bigger expansion in order to include more rides in 20th Century Fox World Theme Park Genting Highlands.
According to the official website, the 25 acres in size theme park will feature over 20 rides and attractions from popular movies such as “Ice Age”, “Rio”, “Alien vs. Predator”, “Planet of the Apes”, “Life of Pi”, “Titanic”, and “Night at the Museum”. This will be the 3rd major theme park in Malaysia after Johor’s Legoland and the newly-opened Movie Animation Park Studios in Ipoh.

The other upcoming 20th Century Fox theme parks in Dubai and South Korea have also been delayed indefinitely.
